LG LFX23961ST Support Manuals Warranty More LG

I just used the link above to get the Manuals on your LG. On page 31, they did the following CYA statements...

The defrost timer will click when the automatic defrost cycle begins and ends. The thermostat control (or refrigerator control, depending on the model) will also click when cycling on and off. Rattling noises may come from the flow of refrigerant, the water line, or items stored on top of the refrigerator .
Your refrigerator is designed to run more efficiently to keep your food items at the desired temperature. The high efficiency compressor may cause your new refrigerator to run longer than your old one, and
you may hear a pulsating or high-pitched sound.

You may hear the evaporator fan motor circulating the air through the refrigerator and freezer compartments.
As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to the refrigerant flowing in your refrigerator.
Contraction and expansion of the inside walls may cause a popping noise.
Water dripping on the defrost heater during a defrost cycle may cause a sizzling sound.
You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the condenser fan.
You may hear water running into the drain pan during the defrost cycle.

I bolded the statement. Sounds like you are going to have to get used to the sound.

Semper Fi,
Z

SOURCE: Freezer section is working but refridge not very cold.

check the vent that lets air from the freezer goes to the refrigerator. A control knob operates the amount of opening through the vent with a flap. makes the flap is not stuck, and responds to the knob, this is all mechanically link.

SOURCE: refridge door does not close evenly on my side by

Top hinges can swing right to left slightly when all 3 screws are loosened under removable cover. Use a 5/16 nut driver. Hinge cover may be phillips, 1/4" or 5/16".However, fridge case must be level left and right first. Level fridge with adjusters behind toe kick cover. Once level, you can adjust gap between doors with top hinge movement. Keep in mind that this is a man-made product and you may not get the doors exactly straight due to lose manufacturing tolerances.

SOURCE: Loud compressor noise from lg frig...

The sound you hear is the Freezer Fan, this problem is hard to diagnose, because the fan spins but not fast enough to circulate chilled air thru the freezer and refrigerator. The minimum labor and material cost for the repair/replacement is around $300.00. But if you chose to make the repair yourself the motor alone costs around [email protected]. But the repair is very labor because the electrical connection for this fan is at the rear of the unit

The defrost drain tube is plugged. Move the refrig out from the wall and remove the tube which goes from the center middle of the back to the bottom part of the refrig. Clean out the tube and check the part that goes into the refrig. That part usually comes off with a quarter turn or so, then pull.

You have a problem with the ice room fan motor. It will not send freezing cold air to the icemaker. You will need to have a qualified technician replace the fan motor.
Good luck

Refridge and freezer stopped cooling

it is either the start switch on the side of the compressor or the compressor itself.
the buzzing sound is the start switch trying to start the compressor and the click is the overload on the start switch kicking it out.
the start switch is bad or the compressor is pulling too much amps = bad compressor.
